R&B/Soul Crooner RUSSELL TAYLOR studio project, his 4th, “Tin Man: The Blue”
“A collection of songs that are introspective and moody; like if we could hear the color Blue speak for itself over music. Tin Man is a reference to the movie The Wiz, wherein the Tin Man was on a quest to find his heart. The Tin Man wanted to feel.
As a Black man living in the current state of the world, to feel is to be vulnerable. To be vulnerable can be dangerous. Tin Man is a way of expressing my vulnerability via song,” mentions Russell.
In anticipation to the 60th annual 2018 Grammy Awards, Russell Taylor has been considered to be nominated in the following (6) categories; Record Of The Year (Come Home), Song Of The Year (Superman featuring Lalah Hathaway), Best Pop Solo Performance (Dance With Somebody, Come Home), Best Traditional R&B Performance (Superman featuring Lalah Hathaway), Best R&B Song (Thrill), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Tin Man:The Blue)
Russell says, “I live a life of gratitude. I am grateful for this God-given ability and that I have been so well-received for so long. I am grateful for all that we have achieved with War of Hearts and to all of the people – my team, my friends, my followers – who continue to support me on this journey. And it is a journey. It’s a marathon not a sprint!”
